  • 8 slices prosciutto

  • 6 cups baby arugula

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • salt & pepper to taste

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 small honeydew melon, cubed

  • 12 Sunsweet Prunes, halved


Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the prosciutto slices smoothly on top. Place a second layer of parchment paper over the prosciutto and weigh the whole thing down with large ovenproof dishes. Bake for approx. 12 to 15 minutes, or until crispy. Set aside to cool.


Meanwhile in a small bowl, make the dressing by whisking together lemon juice, 2 tablespoons water, maple syrup, salt, pepper and olive oil.


In a medium bowl, toss arugula half of the dressing and arrange onto serving plates. Top with cubed melon and halved prunes.


Crumble the crisp prosciutto over top and serve with the remaining dressing.


Tip: Garnish with mint leaves and crumbled goat cheese if desired.
